Summary
Daugherty shows how the myth of American author Lee Brammer begins with learning the dynamics of American culture in the late twentieth century. At one time, the award-winning journalist and novelist Brammer (1929-78) was lauded as the second coming of F. Scott Fitzgerald, he says. David Halberstam called his novel The Gay Place a classic, inspired by Lyndon Johnson, original, intensely human, a book that would be read a century in the future. Daugherty recounts how Brammer worked for Lyndon Johnson for years as he led the U.S. Senate, enduring Johnson's temper and difficult friendship. Post-LBJ, he says, Brammer described himself as involved with writing unfinished masterpieces, downing drugs and becoming "the best approximation of guru and human wonder around."
